Musician Campaign

...building a on mutual respect for our art...

...creating the next generation of music lovers...

As the summer comes to an end and the beginning of the performing/academic year begins, the Memphis Youth Symphony Program gets underway.  The Board of Directors is excited about the 2019-2020 season as we have three new conductors leading our students in their musical endeavors this year:  Chelsea Subick, Prelude Strings; Long Long Kang, String Orchestra; Kalena Bovell, Youth Symphony. 


During this fiscal year, the Board is working to raise awareness of the MYSP in hopes of expanding our programming in the near future.  We are actively working to connect with our alumni base as well as you, our Memphis-Area Musicians, for support this coming season.  Below are a few ways you can support our students; there are many other ways you may be able to support the program during this season beyond this campaign if you explore the "Support" button above.
